Rapper Cardi B has defended herself after a video emerged showing her discussing drugging and robbing men when she was still a stripper.

In the three-year-old clip, the rapper explained how she would target men while working in New York.

The video inspired the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB, a reference to the documentary Surviving R Kelly, as well as calls to boycott Cardi B.

She has now responded to the controversy in a lengthy Instagram post, writing she did things in her past “I felt I needed to do to make a living”.
